Buhler Industries moves U.S. production facility
May 12, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Buhler Industries is increasing production at its facility in Willmar, Minnesota and closing its factory in Fargo, North Dakota, affecting 35 jobs.
According to the Winnipeg, Manitoba–based company, this move will increase efficiency and reduce overhead costs at the Willmar factory, which manufactures products under the Farm King brand.
Buhler, a manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, says the move was precipitated by unpredictability in the agriculture commodities market and fluctuations in the exchange rate, as dealers in Canada sell several US-based Farm King-branded products.
Product lines currently manufactured at the Buhler Industries facility in Fargo will be relocated to the Willmar factory during the summer months and production in Fargo will cease on September 30, 2020.
Farm King dealers in Canada and the United States will not experience delays in delivery of whole goods or service parts.
Buhler’s products are marketed under the brand names Versatile and Farm King. The company operates manufacturing facilities and distribution centres in Canada and the United States.
